Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister V�ronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems.

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem.

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 97,027

Fitness Minutes: 97,323

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

Merci beaucoup chère Ginie de t'être arrêtée sur mon blog après le retour de ton accès à Internet. Tu as raison, c'est triste de voir de vieux bâtiments en ruines. Je crois qu'il y a tellement de châteaux en France qu'il est difficile de trouver les moyens de les entretenir tous ! :)
Je te souhaite un bon jeudi. Pour moi aujourd'hui, c'est retour au travail après presque 3 semaines de vacances. Cela m'a fait beaucoup de bien et redonné des forces. emoticon emoticon

This is zucchini relish I am making now but I do make chili sauce. Yes it is yummy stuff! My granddaughter likes it on scrambled eggs. It does have green peppers in it but I am sure you could make it without them since tomatoes are the main ingredient. Let me know if you want the recipe.

I'm glad you hired someone to take over the yard work. I am doing more and more as John does less and less. Eventually I will probably do the same as you but not this year. As you've found, there just isn't the time and energy to do it all.

Last week was a mix for me too...I have been doing better with the after dinner eating, late night snacking but had a couple of times when I caved. Overall kept my daily intake usually below the lower cal allowance or right at the lower limit and usually made fairly good choices nutritionally but the scale isn't budging...frustrating. My steps are up but not all the way to where they should be I think and I know I really need to do some ST. Wish I loved that but I don't..LOL. Well, we didn't expect perfection last week and if we improve this week then the next week we'll be even better right?
